I’m a writer, editor, and educator. I appreciate tall buildings, tall trees, foreign films, books in translation, and the Seattle Mariners.
I'm a writer and editor with more than ten years of experience in marketing and publishing (digital and print), with demonstrated expertise launching new products, growing audiences, and increasing traffic and readerships. I bring a sharp eye and an array of creative skills and strategies to any project or organization.
I’m a voting member of the National Book Critics Circle and a contributor for the Brooklyn Rail, Huffington Post, the Faster Times, and Tottenville Review. My work has been recognized with fellowships from the Ragdale Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, the Jentel Foundation, the Terry Family Foundation, and from Can Serrat International Art Center. I was recently nominated for the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers for a short story published in Joyland Magazine.
I’ve taught creative writing through Duke University’s OLLI Program, Skillshare.com, Education Unlimited, and the Monterey Bay Writers Studio—an organization I co-founded supporting the literary arts in California’s Central Coast through a diverse offering of classes, workshops, and events.
